Take a step back in time and discover the Bennett Estate, formerly known as Brookside Manor. The iconic Kelowna landmark has been owned by two prominent Kelowna families. Built between 1912 and 1914 by F.R.E. DeHart in the Tudor Revival style, and then purchased in 1936 by William Andrew Cecil Bennett. Originally set on approximately 7 acres and bordering Mill Creek the estate served as the backdrop for numerous gatherings including the annual garden party on July 1. Now resting on approximately 0.2 acres it is surrounded by serene, mature landscaping with a spacious community lawn. Designated a Heritage home by the Heritage society a majority of the residence remains with original details intact. Stepping into the historic home you’ll notice intricate cherry-finished woodwork along the walls, various portions of original wallpaper, chandeliers, and a beautiful marble entry. Wood floors carried throughout lend a sense of warmth. A grand staircase in the foyer leads to the second level. A highlight of the main level is the spacious living area with brick fireplace that will have you immersed in another time. Upstairs you’ll discover 4 huge bedrooms with an additional staircase leading to the kitchen. An abundance of space in the basement can be used as a rec room or home gym. Located in the most tranquil setting in the heart of Kelowna you’ll the appreciate the proximity of downtown Kelowna and experience a setting reminiscent of living on acreage. (id:37990)

Client Feedback

  • Thank you for everything. I am so happy we chose your team as you were all so fantastic. You made the process very seamless. I will totally recommend you to others.

    Ryan and Natasha H.

  • We’ve been working with Justin for two years with much success. Justin and his group are organized, professional, efficient, available, and get the job done without chaos and confusion! Justin handles the clients calmly and professionally and keeps things running smoothly. We highly recommend him!"

    Scott & Gina Tyerman

  • Moving from another city, it was easy to see Kelowna offers many choices when it comes to choosing a Realtor®. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, well-connected professional, look no further than Justin O’Connor. He is thorough in his appraisal work and negotiates with a quiet confidence. Justin takes the time to get to know his clients, listens to their plans and stay focussed on their goals. It was a pleasure to work with Justin and his Sotheby’s team. They always kept the process enjoyable and stayed in touch. Justin and his team know how to ease the stresses that come with making big decisions and… he has a great sense of humor!

    Anne Johnston

  • I think I was still in shock last night when we went through this process. Grant and I have loved our home over the years and have always taken pride in updating it for our own enjoyment. When we decided to move to a view lot and build our dream home, we knew our home would be attractive given the location and lot size. Your advice regarding further updates and staging was obviously very advantageous. Thank you!! I would also like to let you and Justin know (as I said, I think I was in a state of shock last night) since I didn’t say so last night, we are so appreciative of everything you have done for us to make this sale happen. I totally understand all of the behind the scenes work you both did with gathering information and providing immediate response to any agent query. You both represented Grant and I very, very well! I know we can’t totally celebrate until March 23 however, the heavy lifting is done. I would not hesitate to recommend the Justin O’Connor Group to anyone buying or selling!

    Grant and Joyce

  • Working with Sotheby's was nothing less than professional. From start to finish everything went smoothly. It's good to choose a realtor that puts the client's interest first. I would recommend anyone selling their property to not hesitate going with Justin and the team!!

    Ernie and Sue

  • When selling your home, it is essential that you are using the most professional and experienced people to guide you through this often complex process. The Sotheby’s group met all of our criteria and requirements to ensure we valued our house at the right price and made sure the entire experience was handled properly from day one all the way through to the final closing. We would highly recommend their friendly expert services.

    Guy and Sonja

  • We have worked with the Justin O Connor team for both the sale of our show homes over the past 5 years as well as for our own personal home sales. The professionalism and knowledge ensured the process proceeded smoothly.

    They do their research and deliver first class service throughout the sale process which carries through to the after-sale support as well. As a custom homebuilder it is important that we have a smooth transition to our clients as we turn over our homes.

    I recommend the team for your real estate needs. You need a great team in the ever-evolving market here in the Okanagan.
